Have to agree the American theme was a bust, and the performances suffered for it. And I'm sorry, with so many great patriotic songs, who the h*ll thinks a Miley Cyrus song should even be in the Top 100 list there!?? That was just ridiculous!
I have actually been pleasantly impressed with Romeo. No, he isn't going to win - but he is sincerely trying and his performance last night was enjoyable.
Ralph - I'm sorry, I couldn't get past those jeans worn up so high he could give my grandpa a run for his money!
Petra is beautiful and sweet, but her dancing is nothing special. If it was a personality contest, she would be in the top 3, no problem. But I think her time has come.
Kirstie - man, that was one of the raunchiest fox trots I have ever seen! It went with the music (terrible choice), and her outfit was awful. But I was entertained, and Maks shirtless - yes, please!!
Hines and Chris both did well. I agree with most of you, I didn't see the hip action the judges were talking about. But I am not a dance expert, so what do I know.
Kendra - I actually enjoyed the performance and think she did better this week and tried. Unfortunately, she has not made many new fans on this show. Her core fans love her, but I don't think her personality translates well here. I also think she is one of those people who is used to excelling at physical things. If she doesn't excel immediately, she doesn't try - and I think that is what we are seeing.
Chelsea - I thought her dance was fine. I thought Mark toned it down a bit - at least he was in the back so we could actually SEE her dance this week. I'm sure she will be around for a while, but she just doesn't do anything for me. Maybe it is Mark. Maybe it is because there are so many others who have a better story and are more entertaining. She is just forgettable to me - which is interesting given that she is a good dancer.
